    Cross processing with C41 black and white film.

    I have just seen a question on another forum asking if it is possible to cross process a C41 black and white film.

    i.e. Ilford XP2 in E6.

    Has anyone tried this?

    You will get green "B&W" slides but unfortunately no good printable or projectable B&W slides.

    Best regards,

    Hi Steve,
    Yes you can get respectable results. Tends to be high contrast, like most cross processing.
    Attached is XP2 in Tetenal E6
    Best wishes

    A few years ago I did it with Kodak's chromogenic b&w film. It needed to be over exposed by a good many stops (at least 4 if I recall correctly) and produced a beautiful cyan tinted slide that was projectable. I also tried lowering the pull and increasing the development, but the highlights went pink.
